South of our Sacramento home, in San Marcos, California, a high school football player suddenly collapsed during one of his games. Reports still have yet to fully discover why the teen collapsed, but most likely he suffered a concussion that was not diagnosed right away.
Brain injuries are a serious concern, no matter how little. A concussion is a small brain injury that may not seem to be a very big deal at the time of the accident, but can have lasting and long-term effects. Athletes have many different terms they use to describe a concussion, including; getting your “bell rung”, feeling “foggy”, and “getting dinged”. These terms can make concussions sound pretty innocent, but we should be aware of the impact this mild brain injury can have.
This is important to know and diagnose because a concussion IS a brain injury and deserves special attention. Having one concussion also makes you more susceptible to further concussions in the future. Statistics show that suffering from one concussion will make you 4 to 6 times more likely to suffer another concussion. In addition, the more concussions one suffers from, the worse it is for them. Studies have shown that each additional concussion has an additive effect, amount to more and more damage to the brain each time it suffers from a concussion.
